Also, anyone who says things like, "...(you) don't and never will..." are showing their ignorance, because you cannot possibly know what someone might do in the future.

And then telling us we don't understand technology.... Again, does he know who we are? Has he read the "what's your background" on all of us?

From his writing, I'm guessing he wasn't an English major, LOL. So, a dumb-a$$ in English, but a genius in "technology", I guess

Oh, and then "knowing" the guy's wife's Tahoe "never" got 25mpg.... Why not? He's saying his Tahoe got 28mpg with his "patented technology". Why couldn't experienced ecomodders & hypermilers do it with their methods? Oh, wait - because HE and HIS "technology" are the only possible way to do it. How silly of me.

Anyway, sorry about the mini-rant here, but people like this make it hard for me to keep quiet....

EDIT: Oh, the thing that "got me" to begin with - going on attack with his first reply to the first reply. Diplomacy skills similar to his English skills.

Sport Coupe 69.62 mpg, P&G, nice tailwind.


It's irrelevant.


Fill up a fuel log and show what it REALLY gets.

I have a fuelly log the latest 220 miles fill up is set to hit 27 to 29.5 combined on the next fill up



24.2
Avg MPG...
3238
Total Miles Tracked


considering it does have the original worn out battery
that is 11 years old it's doing pretty good.... build date 01/08


I doubt the op is getting 28mpg considering that old suv is 0.45 Drag coefficient unless it's heavy modified
